Over the past three weeks, the Blood Center has been forced to cancel dozens of blood drives (68, and counting) leading to a loss of more than 2200 donations due to record cold tempatures, snow, and ice.
If you are able to safely travel to donate blood this week, please do. To find a donation location near you, call (800) 747-5401, visit www.bloodcenterimpact.org, or use the Blood Center’s IMPACT mobile app.
With another winter storm on the way to portions of our service region, we will continue to provide information on the impact of winter weather at www.bloodcenter.org/weather.
Terry Calhoun reached his 100th gallon on August 17, 2017, and we couldn't be more proud of him! He began donating in the early 1960s, and has dedicated so much time to helping save lives with his 800 donations (8 donations = 1 gallon)! The celebration continues September 16, when he hosts his own blood drive and hope to recruit 100 blood donors! Thank you for everything, Terry!
